Trend Spotting with BHG: Gold

The latest trend in jewelry and fashion comes to home fashion and is easy to DIY.

I am loving how the last 10 years of silver is now trending toward gold. It started on the runway and now it's in everything from fingernail polish to home d├ęcor. But you don't have to spend a pot of gold to get this gilded trend. It's super easy to DIY. Take a plain black tote bag, add some gold tape. Now, it's a date night worthy tote-- simple and gorgeous. Wrap gold cord or ribbon around the basic pillow for an instant update. I love the designer look of a black lampshade with a gold interior, but you can make it yourself so easily. Just buy a black lampshade and a gold leaf kit. There you go. For just a few bucks, you can take your next dinner party up a notch. Go to the thrift store, buy some plain white mismatched China. From the hobby store, get a few gold paint pens and have a field day. Just make some basic designs on the white China and there you go- gilded and fabulous. Or, use gold acrylic paint to add shine to stemware. While you're at the thrift store, grab a wooden candle stick and a serving dish. When you get home, spray paint that candle stick gold, glue it to the bottom of the serving dish and there you go, cake stand. You don't need a lot of shine to earn a gold star in the style department. Just use some left over scraps of ribbon around the edge of a lampshade. There you go-- subtle fashion. When it comes to gold plated fashion, whether it's on you or in your home, the key is to not overdo it. A little bling goes a long way.
